Happy Halloween

Hi everyone. This is a really quick post today to wish you all a very fun and frightening Halloween. 

I am sorry I haven't posted any Halloween creations this year. I currently have the flu and couldn't face slapping on loads of make-up. Trust me I look like death at the moment anyway :( I had planned some looks so maybe I will show you them next year. 

I am going to try and write some regular posts this weekend so fingers crossed something will be up soon. If not please forgive me as I am a poorly kitten :(

Anyway, I just wanted to say be safe and have a spooktacular evening. I think when my fella gets back from squash we are going to have some soup and watch a horror movie which I love to do :)

Love to you all

Maybelline WhiteStay UV Whitening Foundation SPF 18

Hi there sweeties. I hope you are all having a great weekend. Today I have a foundation review for you of two shades that I picked up.

Maybelline WhiteStay UV Whitening Foundation SPF 18 in Left: C00 Snow White & Right: W01 True Ivory

I originally picked up the shade Snow White thinking it was a white foundation to lighten any foundations that I have or get in the future that I find too dark for my skin. I put some on my hand and realised this was not the case. I then saw the shade True Ivory and thought why not try both to see if one is better than the other for my skin tone.

As above

Blended slightly

As you can see the shade on the left (Snow White) is a pink cool tone and the shade on the right (True Ivory) is a warm yellow tone.

The information:

Maybelline WhiteStay UV instantly lightens your skin tone upon application.

SPF18 UV filters.

Combines the dual step of sunscreen & foundation.

It brightens your skin instantly, leaves behind an almost flawless finish and conceals pores.

It does not look cakey, making it suitable for day-wear.


Shake to activate the white bead. Dot on face and neck. Smooth with upward and outward strokes until blended.

My thoughts:

I found both of these shades didn't actually look too different when applied to my skin. This is because there was not much coverage to these foundations. I would say these are light in the level of coverage and almost see through. 

They did not wear well throughout the day as they went quite patchy too. The formula is very runny so be careful when pouring out. I only used these a few times so I can't say for sure about the lightening effect on the skin. 

I would not say that these foundations give a flawless finish or conceal pores. If you want to cover blemishes or an uneven skin tone these foundations are not for you. 

The only use I can maybe find for them is to lighten or lengthen the use of other foundations that I have. 

Online I see that there are other shades of Nude, Natural Ivory and Buff. I would try those out too, but as I don't like the product overall it seems pretty pointless to try those shades. I am glad that these were only 99p each from the 99p Store though so it's not a big fail money wise I guess.

Have you tried these Maybelline foundations before? If yes, how did they work for you? Are there any other Maybelline foundations that you can recommend? Let me know in the comments below.

Mini Haul: Store Twenty One PJ's

Hi beauties. I am back again today with another post for you. I have been in need of picking up some new PJ's and just not getting around to it. I saw these in Store Twenty One the other day and just had to get them as they were also reduced.

Unfortunately the website is not as informative as it used to be, but I can tell you that these came in a variety of prints such as white with black polka dot, pink floral and animal prints. The tops have buttons all the way down the front with a pocket on the left. The bottoms are a pull on style. They are also 100 % cotton.

My nearest Store Twenty One is not very big, but there is usually something that catches my eye. They have a great homeware section too which is worth checking out.

Have you shopped in Store Twenty One? If yes, what bargains did you pick up? Let me know in the comments below.

Dark Romance GlossyBox

Hi there my loves and yay for Friday :) Today I have my latest GlossyBox products to show you. This box is titled Dark Romance as with Halloween and the winter months creeping up on us it's time to delve into the dark side.

MeMeMe Cherub's Blush Cheek & Lip Tint, £5.50 for 12ml

A tint to add a flirty flush to the cheeks and/or lips. 

For cheek application smile and place a small amount of the liquid on the apple of your cheeks then quickly and gently blend in an upwards motion, following your cheekbone. You can also apply to the lips with the small applicator brush to add a flush of colour that will last all day.

There is a slight scent to this product which I can't quite make out, but I don't find it offensive. The shade is a little more pink in tone than it looks in the bottle, but it definitely has that flushed glow.

Inspired by a Queen’s scepter, the distinct jewel-shaped bottle portrays sexy sophistication and lawless luxury. The bottle is enhanced with a rich gold crown cap showcasing a custom crest capturing Katy Perry’s playful essence – regal cats, a music clef, and a dagger.

Top Notes: Wild Berry, Dark Plum, Bergamot.

Middle Notes: Red Velvet Flower, Natural Jasmine Sambac, Rainbow Plumeria. 

Base Notes: Cashmeran, Natural Patchouli Heart, Liquid Praline. 

"When I was creating Killer Queen, I was really inspired by the idea of a strong, confident woman in power and that is exactly what I hoped to put into this fragrance, something that brings out the power inside of you"

Katy Perry

Ooh yeah I like this perfume. It's warm, strong, sensual and powerful all at the same time. It's a very empowering fragrance that I will enjoy wearing for sure so thank you Katy Perry. This definitely has Katy's stamp on it.

Monu Illuminating Primer SPF 15, £24.95 for 50ml

Formulated with light reflective and soft focus technology to brighten the complexion and add instant sheen and radiance. Used alone, gives skin a smooth flawless finish. Provides an excellent base for make-up. Paraben free formulation.

After cleansing and toning apply to the face and neck using gentle upward movements every morning.

This feels like a really silky cream on my hand that blends into the skin easily. It has a slight glow, but I am not sure how much if at all this will show through make-up. It has a very faint creamy scent.

Premae Multi-Vit Smoothie Serum, £22.50 for 50ml

This lightweight shine-control serum is silky yet mattifying. This blended formula offers a comforting barrier cream to soothe redness, and smooth the uneven texture, perfect for applying makeup on top. 

Top Tip: Squirt 2 pumps onto the back of your hand, followed by your desired liquid foundation and mix together with a foundation brush to create a hypoallergenic, natural BB Cream!

I would say this feels like a cream with a slight gel consistency. It has the same lemongrass scent that I did not care for in the Premae Harmony Balm. I will however still try it out, especially as I am intrigued about how it claims to be able to turn foundations into BB Creams by mixing them together. On the information card it advises to apply this before moisturising, but the GlossyBox website says after moisturising so I guess it can be used as serum and/or as a make-up primer?

Eva Cosmetics Mystic Diamond Argan Oil, £22.70 for 100ml

Argan oil and diamond powder. 


Gives sublime shine and volume, adds unique nutrition and prevents frizzy hair.

Pour a small amount into your hand, spread it evenly through wet hair, dry your hair and apply another small amount if it’s needed.

I am not sure if I am meant to pull to top off or pierce the lid on this product so if anyone knows help a girl out :)

In addition to the products there is the edition of the October GlossyBox magazine which I enjoyed on my lunch break the other day.

So far the stand out product for me has been the Katy Perry fragrance. I will be adding this to my Xmas list for sure.

Which products did you receive in your GlossyBox this month? Are you impressed so far? Let me know in the comments below.

Haul: My Boohoo Bargains

Hey there cuties. I have done some more shopping, but at bargain prices so I don't feel too naughty ;) Here are my Boohoo purchases .......

These are really wearable easy to throw on items that will keep me warm. These did come in a range of four colours, but at the moment the only colours available are Black & Grey. I had a 20% of discount code so these ended up being £16.00 each. The wine shade is more burgundy than it appears in this photo.

I have been umming and ahhing over whether or not to get this t-shirt for a while as I wasn't sure how it would look on. This looks very creased in this photo as it has been in a bag, but I actually don't mind the creased effect. You can see how it looks without the creasing in the link above. With the 20% off this was £9.60.

Now although these don't look super flattering here lying flat on my kitchen floor trust me when I say they look much better on. Check out the link above to see what I mean. These were already reduced in price and such a bargain for £15.00.

So that's it for this Boohoo haul. Let me know if you want to see any of these items in an outfit post. 

Have you found any bargains on Boohoo lately? If yes, let me know what you picked up in the comments below.

Haul: Ebay Cold Shoulder T-Shirt Dresses

Hi lovelies and happy Saturday. I am back again today with another post of a wee haul for you. I have been on the hunt for t-shirt dresses recently, but I didn't want to pay the earth for long t-shirts and so when I stumbled upon these items on Ebay I knew I had to get them.

These cold shoulder t-shirt dresses are the exact style I was looking for and at the best price I have found. The material is a bit see through, but I plan to wear a vest dress underneath which will easily solve this. These are £6.99 each, but when you purchase 2 or more eligible items as I did from the seller rogue-accessories they end up at £6.64 each, plus free delivery as they were 5% off. They also sell many other items if you scroll down in the link above.

I don't shop on Ebay that much, but I think I should search on there a lot more as I am sure I can find some other bargains :)

What are your most treasured Ebay finds? Let me know in the comments below.

There were many items that I fell in love with. The sparkle of the dresses was amazing and I love the effect of the ruched leggings too.
